MANAGER'S REPORT 



Board of Selectmen and 
Citizens of Newport 
Newport, New Hampshire 

Gentlemen: 

It is my privilege to present to you the Annual Report for the 
Town of Newport, accompanied by the Annual School Report of the 
Newport School System. 

1966 was again a year of very definite progress in several im- 
portant fields, as follows: 

1. Plans for an overall project for improvements to the Newport 
Water System were nearing completion. These plans include additional 
water supply, storage tank, and improvement to the water distribution 
system, plus metering of all water users. Federal matching funds to- 
taling $378,500 have been approved by the Federal Government. 

2. Work was started and is well along on final plans and speci- 
fications for sewage facilities for the Town of Newport. A Special 
Article is appearing in the 1967 Warrant requesting authority to raise 
funds for this project. This includes Federal and State funds as well 
as funds from the Town of Newport. 

3. Plans for a small Watershed Project, primarily for flood con- 
trol on the Sugar River, were nearing completion. 

4. All taxable real estate in the Town of Newport was reappraised 
and assessed at 100% valuation by the N. H. State Tax Commission. 

5. Many Committees have been appointed by the Board of Select- 
men and have contributed greatly in studying problems of local in- 
terest, and making appropriate recommendations in connection there- 
with. I wish to thank all members of these various Committees for 
their many hours of arduous work, which they have contributed. In 
particular the following should be mentioned: 

(a) Newport Planning Board 

(b) Zoning Board of Adjustment 

(c) Recreation Study Committee 

(d) Municipal Study Committee 

(e) Municipal Charter Committee 

(f) Tree Committee 

(g) Conservation Commission 
(h) Airport Commission 

Last but not least, I would like to thank the Board of Selectmen 
for the support which it has rendered to me as Town Manager 
throughout the year. Without this support the many accomplishments 
in 1966 would not have been possible. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVIN A. HEIDNER 
Town Manager

POLICE DEPARTMENT 



During 1966 one additional full-time patrolman was added to our 
regular Police Department. This now brings the full complement of 
Police Officers including the Chief to seven (7). This gives us added 
coverage and better all around protection. 

We continue to utilize the second car normally assigned to the 
Town Nurse, for Police Department work on weekends. This has 
proven to be very helpful and we will continue this plan. 

The operation of the Department appears to be normal with the 
possible exception that there was a considerable falling off of arrests 
for motor vehicle violations by the State Police. This resulted in a 
reduction in our estimated revenue for the District Court located 
in Newport. It is impossible to state whether this reduction indicates 
a decrease in actual motor vehicle violations or whether the State 
Police were engaged in other more important matters. 

The following are comparative statistics for 1965 and 1966: 

1965 1966

Traffic accidents investigated 

Persons injured in traffic accidents 

Doors and windows found unlocked

FIRE DEPARTMENT 



To the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, 
and Citizens of Newport: 

A program to improve the fire department was started early this 
year after the N. H. Board of Underwriters made an inspection and 
many recommendations. Those complied with to date are: 

1. Purchase of a portable turret gun, 

2. Institution of a systematic training program and appointment 
of Capt. Arthur Gokas as drillmaster, 

3. Installation of an additional telephone at the stationhouse, 

4. Periodic testing of all equipment, 

5. Improvement of records and filing systems. 

Fire officials in cooperation with town officials have also been 
trying to comply with another important recommendation, retirement 
of the obsolete ladder truck and replacement with an aerial ladder 
truck. Letters have been written to other fire departments in an ef- 
fort to secure a second hand aerial ladder. 

The department answered 98 calls in 1966. There were 10 bell 
alarms, 80 still alarms, two out-of-town calls, one false alarm, one 
military call and two calls each for forest fires and rescue operations. 

Estimated insured loss was low. 

Several repair jobs were completed at the station this year. The 
outside trim was painted, worn hall floors and stairs were replaced 
and new toilet and shower facilities were installed. 

On behalf of the department, I wish to thank town officials, po- 
lice and all citizens for cooperation and support; a local concern for 
3 generous contribution to the department's relief fund and property 
ov/ners for their awareness of fire hazards and their willingness to 
correct them. I also thank the men of the department for their effi- 
ciency and for keeping equipment in order, both important factors in 
our efforts to keep insured loss at a minimum. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDWARD J. KARR, Chief 
Newport Fire Dept.

WATER AND SEWER DEPARTMENT 



WATER 



The following is a list of major construction projects completed 
in 1966: 

210 ft. of 1" copper — Mechanic Street 

275 ft. of 1" copper — Summer Street 
1800 ft. of 8" pipe -— Karlene Street 

400 ft. of 4" pipe — Short Street 
6" C. I. Sprinkler service at Brampton Mill 
6" C. I. Sprinkler service at Pine Tree Castings 
6" C. I. Sprinkler service at Dixon's 

Additional work performed: 

34 New Water Services 

18 Water Services Replaced 

4 New Hydrants 

18 Hydrants Repaired 

5 Main Water Leaks Repaired 
5 Frozen Pipes Thawed 

14 Leaks on House Services Repaired 

The final plans and specifications for our overall water improve- 
ment project are nearly completed. These plans will include a new 
gravel packed well in the Pollards Mills area, a new 2^/^ million gallon 
standpipe on Summer Street Ext., certain repair work at the gatehouse 
at Oilman Pond, and additional standby chlorination facilities at the 
chlorinator house. In addition to this, these plans will include the in- 
stallation of a great deal of larger water mains, plus new hydrants 
and meters throughout the entire system. A grant of $378,500 toward 
this project has been approved by the Federal Government. It was de- 
termined in conference with Federal Government representatives in 
1966 that water meters did not qualify for supporting funds. Therefore, 
it is necessary to request the citizens of Newport to approve the issu- 
ance of $100,000 in bonds to include the installation of the meters, 
as well as to take care of certain additional construction costs which 
have taken place since the original estimates were made several 
years ago. 

This project is expected to begin in 1967, and to be completed in 
1968. The entire project will be paid for out of income from water 
users.

SEWER 

The following is a list of work done by the Sewer Department 
during 1966: 

28 Sewer Mains Plugged & Cleaned 
42 Private Sewers Plugged & Cleaned 
4 Sewer Manholes Rebuilt 

3 New Sewer Manholes 

4 New Sewer Lines Private 
1 New Main Sewer Line 

The above list shows an increase of work in this Department, 
made possible due to the fact that the power equipment which we 
now have allows us to take on jobs when private sewers become 
plugged. Naturally when work is done on private sewer lines, the 
Town is reimbursed. We are very glad to be able to offer this addi- 
tional service, and will continue to do so. 

We are proceeding to install new sewer manholes wherever it 
becomes apparent they are needed, so we can take care of our sewer 
mains with our power equipment with a minimum of delay. 

The status of the overall sewer and sewage treatment project 
for the Town of Newport is as follows: 

1. Final plans and specifications should be ready in the spring of 
1967. 

2. A Special Article appears in the 1967 Warrant requesting au- 
thority for the Board of Selectmen to issue bonds to raise the neces- 
sary funds to support this project. 

3. It is hoped that matching State and Federal funds can be re- 
ceived on this project, so that actual construction can begin in 1968.

CEMETERY DEPARTMENT 



During 1966 we continued our efforts to upgrade the lawns in 
Pine Grove and North Newport Cemeteries. We will continue this 
program each year, in the hopes of gradually improving this condition. 

We have begim filling in the low area in Pine Grove Cemetery, 
and expect to have this work completed in 1967. 

A project is now under way to prepare permanent maps for all 
of our cemeteries, and to have these done according to a uniform 
method. 

It has been necessary just recently to increase the rates in the 
cemeteries, due to added costs which have been developing over a 
period of several years. The sale of single lots has been increased 
from $35.00 to $50.00 per lot, and the cost of opening and closing a 
single grave has been increased from $35.00 to $50.00 per grave. 

There were 81 burials in Newport in 1966. 

Pine Grove 39 

St. Patrick's 26 

North Newport 12

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 



In most every respect the Highway Department operations in 
1966 could be considered normal. The usual spring calcium chloride 
treatment was carried out on outlying graveled roads. This program 
which was started several years ago, has been continued on a yearly 
basis. 

The following roads received a sealcoat in 1966: 
Kelleyville River Road 

Oak Street — From bridge to North Newport 
Pine Street — From Claremont Hill to Oak Street 
Bradford Road — Nearly entire length 
East Mountain & Maple Street — From Cross St. to end of 

East Mountain 
Birchwood Grove — All roads 
Old Goshen Road 
Pike Hill Road 
Whitcher Road 
Pollards Mill Road 
Roads in the northeastern section of Town 

The following are culvert installations which were made in 1966: 
Guy Cross Road 20 feet 

Whitcher Road 30 feet 

Birchwood Grove 160 feet 
Harding Road 40 feet 

Chandlers Mill 100 feet 
Brook Road 40 feet 

Cutts Road 20 feet 

Rear of Texaco Station 120 feet 

Approximately one mile of road received an initial blacktop treat- 
ment in the Birchwood Grove area. 

Two bridges were replanked, one located in Paradise and the 
other in North Newport. 

The so-called Pollards Mills Bridge, which was damaged by a milk 
truck, has been completely replaced with a steel bridge having a ten- 
ton capacity. The cost to the Town in the case of this bridge was 
nothing, as the entire bill was paid by the insurance company. 

There was some work done on sidewalks, but unfortunately we 
did not get very far on this program. It is anticipated that our side- 
walks will receive top priority in 1967.

PUBLIC HEALTH NURSE 



To the Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, 
and the People of the Town of Newport: 

The duties of the Town Nurse ran smoothly for the first six 
months of 1966, then on July 1, this phase of Town work came to an 
end. 

Calls made were as follows: 

Medical 654 

Social Service 100 

Pre-Natal 6 

Newborn 6 

Fees collected $372.00 

At this time may I extend a sincere thanks to all who made my 
work so pleasant. 

Respectively submitted, 
MARGARET E. GRANTHAM, R.N. 

On July 1, 1966 the Federal Medicare Program became operation- 
al. Since the majority of the individuals on whom the Town Nurse 
had been calling were eligible under the Medicare Program, it was 
considered advisable to turn the nurse's work over to the Newport 
Home-Health Agency, which operates out of the Newport Hospital. 
In actual operation, it meant that the individual who had been doing 
the work as Town Nurse continued to do the work, except that she 
operated from the Hospital instead of directly from the Town.

NEWPORT HOSPITAL REPORT 



Last year was a very busy year for the Newport Hospital with 
the advent of Medicare. The hospital was one of the first to receive 
Certification from the Social Security Administration and was ready 
to receive Medicare patients when it became effective on July 1. 
Medicare was expected to present many problems such as unnecessary 
admission, prolonged length of stays and additional paper work. Pa- 
per work did increase as expected, but due to the excellent work of 
the "Utilization Review Committee" admissions and length of stay re- 
mained about the same. Medicare patients accounting for 30% of 
the total admissions and 54% of the total patient days, and having an 
average length of stay of only 11 days as compared to an over-all 
average of 6.3 days. 

During November, 1966, the hospital was surveyed by the "Joint 
Commissions of Accreditation of Hospitals" and received accredita- 
tion for another three years. 

In December, the Board of Trustees contracted with Mr. William 
S. Brines, Hospital Consultant, to make a study of the hospital, Mr. 
Brines found no major deficiencies, but made many fine recommenda- 
tions which are being considered by Board of Trustees. 

As in the past the Hospital Aid continued their fine work of pro- 
viding linens and needed equipment with the addition of instruments 
for the Operating Room, complete lighting systems for the Outpatient 
and Operating rooms and typewriters and adding machines for the 
office. 

Patient statistics were as follows: 

Patient days 6,810 

Admissions 1,070 

Births 138 

Operations 882 

X-ray exams 2,491 

Laboratory exams 12,799 

Out-patients treated 4,637 

Respectfully submitted,

LIBRARY REPORT 



Statistics, though they may not tell the whole story, are still the 
best indication we can have of a library's service to a community. At 
the Richards Library, card holders re-registered during 1967 totalled 
1,657; when registration of borrowers was last undertaken 11 years 
ago, it took 23 months to reach the total now reached in 12 months. 
39,379 books were borrowed in 1966: 278 more than in 1965, and 36% 
m.ore than five years ago, the library's last year in the old building. 
The use of microfilms, the number of recordings circulated, and the 
number of reference questions researched were also higher than ever 
before. 

As usual, it has been the library's aim to provide the best pos- 
sible cooperation with and support to the schools. The library par- 
ticipated in the Head Start Project; first-graders heard stories and 
learned to become borrowers; primary building pupils borrowed books 
to take back to their classrooms; ninth-graders studying a library 
unit were given a special talk on use of the library; and three movie 
programs with brief book talks were arranged for the Towle Honor 
Society. As in previous years, junior high and high school students 
made great use of the library in connection with their school work, 
as they undoubtedly will continue to do in the future outside school 
hours. 

The library was in 1967 the scene of a series of art exhibits held 
during the spring and summer months; a series of three philosophical 
lectures sponsored by the Unitarian-Universalist Society; a series of 
book talks by Marian Rudkin, sponsored by the Friends of the Rich- 
ards Library (who also sponsored the Summer Reading-for-Fun Con- 
test and the annual Sarah Josepha Hale Award presentation and lec- 
ture.) A community calendar has been placed in the library, and vari- 
ous community organizations have used the library for meetings. 

During the year, a regular program of book reviews presented by 
the librarian and the trustees was initiated at radio station WCNL. 
Books were delivered regularly to shut-ins, and special books of large 
type provided for those with poor sight. 

The library continues to benefit by its active participation in the 
New Hampshire Library Development Program. The trustees and 
staff wish to express their gratitude to individuals, businesses, and 
organizations who have contributed financially and otherwise to the 
work of the library during the past year.

CIVIL DEFENSE 



A busy and progressive year was had by the Newport Civil Defense 
Program during the year of 1966. 

The local organization began working on the P & A Matching 
Funds Program in June and much has been accomplished with records 
and information bulletins in the EOC. The above includes part-time 
office help that assembled and filed the many bulletins which are re- 
ceived by the Director. 

The Ambulance again attended the local football games as an 
emergency vehicle. 

During the blackout in the Newport area, in the late fall, the 
generator in the Town Hall basement operated for three hours, fur- 
nishing power to the town offices and the EOC. A large flood-light 
was set up and run from a portable generator on Main Street during 
the same blackout. 

The Auxiliary Police held many practice sessions on the CD. 
Range and, in the fall, participated in the state-wide Civil Defense 
Shooting Match in Littleton. A very good showing was made by the 
local officers. 

Several communication tests were conducted in connection with 
the State and National Nets and were classified as very successful. 

Beginning in September, two courses were held in cooperation 
with the State Civil Defense Agency and the State Board of Educa- 
tion. One course was the standard 16 hour Radiological Monitoring 
Training Course which qualified 10 persons as monitors and made 
Newport eligible for complete monitoring kits which have been re- 
ceived. The second course was a 12 hour adult Personal and Family 
Survival Course which taught a general knov/ledge of what to do in 
an emergency. 

Several new members were recruited in the various Civil De- 
fense units. 

Surplus property was acquired for several of the town depart- 
ments. 

It is felt that Civil Defense in Newport has gained much during 
the past year and that plans which have been projected wiU further 
strengthen the organization as time passes.

PLANNING BOARD REPORT 



The membership of the Newport Planning Board is as follows: 

Raymond L. Barrett, Chairman Patrick Zullo 

George Dorr, Secretary Soterios Saggiotes 

The Newport Planning Board did not hold many meetings dur- 
ing 1966. One member of the Board, who had acted as Secretary, 
left our area for Connecticut, thereby reducing the active member- 
ship. The recommended replacement to fill this vacancy will not be 
available to serve until the spring of 1967. 

When the full membership has been reconstituted, the Planning 
Board will again undertake regular meetings, and items which should 
receive top priority for their consideration are a building code for 
the Town of Newport, and a set of sub-division control regulations. 

The Board has met during 1966 to consider certain items which 
have been presented to the Town from time to time, and have sub- 
mitted appropriate recommendations in such cases. 



TREE COMMITTEE 



A Tree Committee was appointed by the Board of Selectmen in 
1963 for the purpose of studying the situation concerning trees, pri- 
marily around the Town Common, and to make recommendations to 
the Board of Selectmen thereon. This Committee presently consists of 
the following: 

Raymond Holden, Chairman Oliver Kathan 

Toivo White Lawrence Whitney 

Harry Woodard 
In a report recently submitted to the Board of Selectmen, the 
Tree Committee recommends the following: 

1. A Tree Warden be appointed. 

2. The Town appropriate $1,600 per year for tree care, pruning, 
etc. 

3. A program of tree replacement be worked out. 

4. A program of cooperation with the private property owner 
concerning tree care be initiated. 

In principle the Board of Selectmen has accepted the Tree Com- 
mittee's recommendations. Funds have been included in the 1967 
budget as recommended by the Committee. This has been the prac- 
tice over the past several years. A Special Article appears in the 1967 
Warrant for the appropriation of $2,000 to begin a program of build- 
ing up the grass on the Newport Common. The recommendation of the 
Committee concerning a Tree Warden is still under consideration, 
and will receive the attention of the Board of Selectmen in the near 
future.

BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT 



The membership of the Zoning Board of Adjustment is as follows: 

Bernard P. Towne, Chairman Andrew Williams 

Virginia M. Krauss, Secretary John Boyle 

Gleon Johnson 

Andrew Williams was reappointed by the Selectmen to a five 
year term. Bernard P. Towne was elected Chairman and Virginia M. 
Krauss Secretary. The board held 10 meetings during 1966 and acted 
on nine appeals. 

The request by Home Owners Association of Newport for a Special 
Exception to build a fraternal hall for the use of the Knights of Co- 
lumbus on Maple Street was granted. 

The request for a variance by Charles LaPierre to build a 30 x 
40 commercial garage on Bradford Road was denied. 

The request by Oliver Kemp for a variance to build a home on 
an undersized lot on Unity Road was granted. 

The request for a variance by Cecil Page to build a garage on 
property located on Second Street was granted, because of peculiar 
characteristics of the land as to shape and topography. 

The request by Ed Narus for a variance to expand his business 
to sell househbld furniture in property located on Belknap Avenue 
was denied. 

The request by Mark Heath for a variance in the single family 
residential zone to sell feed and grain on property located at 129 Oak 
Street was denied. 

The request by Mark Heath for a variance in the rural zone to 
sell feed and grain on property located on Pollard's Mills Road was 
granted. 

The request by Newport Mobile Homes for a variance in the rural 
zone to sell mobile homes and supplies and service on property lo- 
cated on Route 11 in Kelleyville was granted. 

The request for a Special Exception by the Advent Christian 
Church on North Main Street for approval of earth removal was 
granted. 

The request by Patten's Enterprises, Inc., for a variance to build 
an addition on their new garage to accommodate an auto frame ma- 
chine which could not be put in the old garage because of the town 
sewer line running under it, was granted. 

Respectfully submittted, 

BERNARD P. TOWNE

RECREATION STUDY COMMITTEE 



Late in 1965, a Committee was appointed by the Board of Select- 
men to investigate the need for a recreation program for the Town 
of Newport, to include personnel requirements, and also physical fa- 
cilities as necessary. The Committee consists of the following indi- 
viduals: 

George A. Dorr Jr., Chairman Harold Campbell 

Louis Thompson, Secretary Edward DeCourcy 

Mrs. Alfred Hague John C. McCrillis 

Mrs. Stanley Terhune Robert Onnela 

Mrs. Robert Underbill Harry Wasasier (resigned) 

Robert Bates Joseph Willett (deceased) 

The Committee has worked long and hard during 1966 in devel- 
oping background information necessary for this study. They have 
visited several other communities in the State of New Hampshire, 
where successful recreation programs are now being conducted. They 
have considered in detail all of the various activities presently in 
operation in Newport. This includes activities of all types for all in- 
dividuals, both young and old. The Committee also investigated the 
various physical facilities available in Newport at the present time. 
In the final report which this Committee submitted to the Board of 
Selectmen in January of 1967, the following recommendations were 
made: 

A Program 

The Study Committee unanimously recommends that a formal 
and public recreation program be instituted by the municipal govern- 
ment. 

This program should be financed by local tax revenues and such 
other funds, including endowments, as may become available. 

A public recreation program is urged to help coordinate present 
activities, programs and facilities for maximum benefit to all citizens. 

This program is needed: 

1. to minimize the competition for facilities, for leadership for 
finances; 

2. to expand recreational opportimities to Newporters of all 
ages and interests; 

3. to provide continuity of programs and to develop and to co- 
ordinate leadership. 

4. to provide responsible administration and development of 
community recreational resources. 

— 26 — 



Leadership 

The Study Committee urges the hiring of a full-time, professional 
recreation director for Newport. 

Professional leadership is the prime ingredient in a recreational 
program. This leadership is needed to bring about the blend of indi- 
viduals, talents, desires and facilities for maximum benefit to Newport. 

Leader Assistance 

We recommend that Selectmen appoint a seven-member Recre- 
ation Commission to serve in an advisory capacity to municipal offic- 
ials and the recreation director in the development of a recreation 
program for Newport. 

Facilities 

In conjunction with a professional recreation director and a rec- 
reation program, we feel the town needs increased facilities for this 
purpose. 

During the development of the program, we recommend that the 
town continue to make available meeting rooms and larger areas 
suitable for physical activities. 

The Board of Selectmen has accepted the above recommenda- 
tions, and a Special Article appears in the 1967 Warrant requesting 
the sum of $12,000 for the year 1967 to support a recreation program. 
There is also a Special Article requesting funds in the sum of $5,000 
to be used toward the purchase of the National Guard Armory locat- 
ed on Belknap Avenue. If this building can be purchased at a reason- 
able cost, it is conceivable that a part or all of the building could be 
utilized in connection with a recreation program.

MUNiaPAL GOVERNMENT STUDY COMMITTEE 
AND THE CHARTER COMMISSION 



On May 24, 1966, the Board of Selectmen appointed the following 
members to constitute a Municipal Study Committee: 

H. Newcomb Eldredge, Chairman George Catsam 

Jean Claggett John DeMayo 

Albert J. Gauthier Stanley B. Terhune 

William F. Tracey 

After months of detailed investigation and careful consideration 
the Committee recommended the Town Council-Manager form with 
the built-in protection of the continuing Town Meeting in a weakened 
form, and the provision that within five years the Town Meeting can 
abolish itself by referendum vote. 

On November 15, 1966, the Board of Selectmen appointed a Chart- 
er Commission composed of Oliver H. Cowles, H. Newcomb Eldredge, 
John C. Fairbanks, Stanley B. Terhune, Chairman, and William F. 
Tracey, The Commission was directed to draft a proposed charter, 
based upon the Municipal Study Committee's report by January 1, 
1967. 

By the designated date, the Charter Committee presented its pro- 
posed Charter with the suggestion that it be reviewed and checked 
by the Town Counsel and/ or the Attorney General, before present- 
ing it to the State Legislature and the voters of the Town of Newport. 

As more time is required for checking the legal aspects of the 
Charter and as administrative procedures being followed by the Gen- 
eral Court were changed in this 1967 Session, further action on the 
Charter was precluded. 

It is hoped that during the next two years, the proposed Charter 
will be reviewed and readied for presentation to both the State Legis- 
lature and the voters of the Town of Newport.

AUDIT PROCEDURE 

The accounts and records of all town officials charged with the 
custody, receipt and disbursement of public funds were examined and 
audited. Vouchers and cancelled checks were compared with support- 
ing invoices and payrolls as well as entries in the books of record. 
Receipts were checked by source insofar as possible and totals of re- 
ceipts and expenditures verified. Book balances were verified by com- 
parison with reconciled bank balances made from statements obtained 
from depository banks. Verification of uncollected taxes was m^ade by 
mailing notices to delinquent taxpayers as indicated by the Collector's 
records. Accounts receivable of the Water and Sewer Departments 
were also verified by sending notices to persons whose names appeared 
on the delinquent lists. The amounts of uncollected and unredeemed 
taxes and Water and Sewer Department accounts receivable, as indi- 
cated in this report are therefore subject to any changes which may 
be necessitated by the return of verification notices.

GENERAL COMMENTS 

Current Surplus: 

The current surplus (excess of total assets over current liabilities) 
increased by $26,845.74, from $15,996.41 to $42,842.15 in 1966, as shown 
herewith: 

December 31, 1965 December 31, 1966 

Total Assets $283,040.87 $395,274.21 

Current LiabiUties 267,044.46 352,432.06 



Current Surplus $ 15,996.41 $ 42,842.15 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

The loose leaf sheets which are used for the Tax Collector's war- 
rant book should be made up in such a way that they may be inserted 
in a post binder prior ,to the time the warrant is committed to the 
Collector. 

The record of tax sales as entered in the tax sale record book 
should remain as originally recorded, rather than re-written from time 
to time with the omission of taxes that have been redeemed. 

A change fund should be established for the Tax Collector in 
order that collections may be remitted in total instead of a portion 
being withheld for the purpose of making change. 

Conclusion: 

The provisions of Chapter 184 of the Laws of 1955, require that 
this report or the summary of findings and recommendations (letter 
of transmittal) shall be published in the next annual report of the 
Town. 

We extend our thanks to the officials of the Town of Newport for 
their assistance during the course of the audit. 

Yours very truly,

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the Citizens of Newport: 

Some of the significant features of this school year include: 

1. Schools opened in September with an all-time high of 1,475 
students enrolled. 

2. Another successful Summer Head Start Program was con- 
ducted in Newport for 38 pre-school youngsters as a part of the 
Sullivan County Head Start Project. 

3. We continued to receive substantially the same amount of 
funds under Title I and H of the Elementary and Secondary Educa- 
tion Act. The specifics of our Title I projects are spelled out in the 
Report of the Teacher Consultant. Title H funds provide supplemen- 
tary library and other instructional materials. 

4. Newport-Croydon AREA School District. Following voter ap- 
proval at meetings in Newport and Croydon on June 2, 1966, the 
State Board of Education issued a Certificate of Formation of the 
AREA District as of July 1, 1966. By agreeing to accept Croydon stu- 
dents in Grades 7-12, Newport will receive an additional 10% in 
State Building Aid funds on the High School building — including 
the unpaid portion of the original Junior High School building. Croy- 
don will pay no rental charge. When the State of New Hampshire 
provides any funds for incentive aid for AREA Districts (as the law 
provides) it will be equally apportioned on a per-pupil basis by the 
two Districts. 

5. The High School addition was substantially completed and oc- 
cupied on November 28, 1966. An Open House was held on January 
15, 1967 giving the public its first glimpse of the new facilities. Pho- 
tographs throughout these pages provide a pictorial report of a num- 
ber of the features of the new plant. Many favorable comments have 
been received from local citizens, visitors, and state education offic- 
ials. 

6. School Re-Organization. 

a. On November 28, 1966, students in Grades 10, 11, and 12 joined 
those in Grades 7, 8, and 9 in the Junior-Senior High School 
building. 

b. On December 1, 1966, 10 sections of students in Grades 4, 5, 
and 6 at Richards School moved to new quarters in the Towle 
Elementary School. 

— 54 — 



c. On December 7, 1966, the Primary School was closed and 
seven sections of Grades 1 and 2 moved to new quarters at 
the Richards School. 

A tremendous amount of time and effort went into the planning, 
packing, moving, unpacking, and settling of this three-pronged change- 
over. Much credit is due the principals, teachers, students, and es- 
pecially the custodians in these back-breaking moves. 



CONCLUSION 

Newport's educational plant has taken a giant step forward. We 
now must turn our attention to make the best use of the facilities 
at both the elementary and secondary levels. Changing conditions 
make it imperative that course content be kept up-to-date, modern 
materials and equipment be used and a constant and continuous ef- 
fort be made to provide a qualified and effective teaching staff. 



Respectfully submitted, 

GORDON B. FLINT 
Superintendent of Schools

ANNUAL REPORT OF PRINCIPAL 
NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL 

Newport, New Hampshire 



February 9, 1967 



Mr. Gordon B. Flint 
Superintendent of Schools 
Newport, New Hampshire 

Dear Mr. Flint: 

I am pleased to submit this report to you as principal of New- 
port High School which includes grades seven through twelve. 

This past year has been marked by a great deal of planning, 
long weeks of waiting and finally a monumental move into our new 
high school facilities. Our first day in the new addition wa<5 on Mon- 
day, November 28, 1966. Most of the moving was accomplished during 
the previous weeks. 

To include other items in this report, such as the details involved 
in planning and moving, new courses which have been added and a 
description of the facilities, would detract from the significant fact 
that the new high school addition has been completed. 

The Town of Newport has to be proud of this outstanding ac- 
complishment. I hope that the citizens show an interest and take an 
active part in the continual planning of the educational program which 
will fully use these new facilities. 

I want to thank all of the people who put in so many extra hours 
to complete the necessary tasks which had to be done prior to and 
during the move. Especially the faculty, custodians, cafeteria work- 
ers, other staff members and the students who in addition to help- 
ing took all of the necessary confusion in stride. 

Respectfully submitted, 



JOHN H. SOKUL 
Principal

ANNUAL REPORT OF PRINCIPAL 
RICHARDS SCHOOL 



February 8, 1967 

Mr. Gordon B. Flint 
Superintendent of Schools 
Newport, New Hampshire 

Dear Sir, 

I am pleased to submit my tenth annual report as Principal of 
Richards School. 

The following is a brief summary of information that would be 
important for parents and citizens to know. 

1. New books are continually being added to the Richards 
School Library which is now being used by the Richards School and 
Primary School children. I want to take this opportunity to thank 
the mother volunteers who ate donating their time to supervise the 
library. 

2. Homogeneous grouping (pupils working with others on a 
similar level of achievement) has been continued in the 4th, 5th and 
6th grades primarily in Reading, Mathematics and English. Homje 
room are grouped heterogeneously, (pupils working with others on 
a different level of achievement). 

3. The School Counseling Service with Dr. C. N. Allen, Psychol- 
ogist, has been extended to an every other week basis. 

4. For the ninth consecutive year Richards School has partic- 
ipated in the annual Union Leader New Hampshire State Spelling Bee. 

5. Educational television in Science, Art, and Our New Hamp- 
shire has continued as an aid to teaching. 

6. During the morning recess all children participate in organ- 
ized games under the supervision of a teacher. 

7. The eighth annual Grade Glimpses Program was jointly held 
with the Primary School and because of its continued success has 
performed on two nights. 

8. Newport's summer Head Start Development Center for 38 
children was located in the Richards School. 

9. Funds from Title I and Title II were used in projects for 
the "educationally deprived" pupils. 

10. Fire drills are held at least once a month and twice a month 
during warm weather. Children on the second floor of the old build- 
ing have used the fire escape during fire drills. 

I wish to thank the parents, citizens, faculty, school nurse, cus- 
todians, pupils and other school personnel who have given me sup- 
port and cooperation to make this a successful school year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALKIVEADIS JURIS

REPORT OF TEACHER CONSULTANT 



Departing from the usual report on several aspects of the school 
program, I would like to devote this report to remarks relative to our 
special projects under Title I, Public Law 89-10, ESEA. 

For the first time since the initiation of a summer school program, 
parents were able to enroll students in the 1966 summer school free 
of tuition charges. This was made possible by the extension of New- 
port's Title I projects to include a summer program in reading and 
mathematics for students in grades 1 through 8. The purpose here 
v/as to offer a continuation of special help (particularly in reading) 
to those students who were receiving attention through the regular 
school year project taught by Mrs. Francis Nolin of Sunapee. Mrs. 
Nolin provided remedial reading classes for a number of students 
at the elementary grades; three Teacher Aides (Mrs. Howard Davis, 
Mrs. Fred Maxfield, and Mrs. Edward Kennedy) rendered a number 
of important routine, non-instructional services permitting regular 
classroom teachers to provide for the needs of other studentts. 

The 1966 summer school program found 80 youngsters in the 
mathematics classes and 75 in the reading classes, including students 
from all districts in this supervisory union. Sixteen different classes 
were taught by four teachers, each having four classes. Mr. Frank 
Hammond of Sunapee School and Mrs. Myrtle Starkey of the Goshen- 
Lempster School taught the reading classes; Mrs. Carol Lord, formerly 
of Sunapee School and Mrs. Marilyn Heath of the Springfield Memor- 
ial School taught the mathematics classes. 

Greater than usual success was noted in this summer program 
through (1) its six weeks operation, rather than the previous year's 
four-week session; (2) increased members of the teaching staff; and 
(3) the utilization of much audio-visual materials and equipment not 
available in earlier programs. 

Now in the second year of Title I programs, the 1966-67 school 
year projects provide for the needs of educationally deprived young- 
sters by establishing junior-senior high classes for reading improve- 
ment. Nearly all of Mr. Stephen Zemianek's time is devoted to this 
purpose as each of his classes meets from l^^ to 2 hours weekly. 
Taught in small class settings, and using some of the newer approach- 
es and materials, it is expected that improved reading skills and 
other related factors to learning will result. 

— 65 — 



At the 8th grade level, we were fortunate to have received ap- 
proval for an additional teacher to make possible a fifth division and 
thus provide a program to improve the skills, attitudes, and efforts 
of some 25 students in the fields of mathematics, science, history, 
and English. Since this part of the project must be assumed through 
local financial effort next year, we can look forward to even greater 
concentration of help for these and other youngsters beyond the pres- 
ent program. 

At the elementary level, we were unable to secure a remedial 
reading teacher for the continuation of the work of Mrs. Nolin. We 
were, however, able to employ three Teacher Aides (Mrs. Verne Vio- 
lette, Mrs. Fred Maxfield, and Mrs. Edward Kennedy) who now work 
under the direction and supervision of the Principal, Mr. Al Juris 
and the elementary teachers. The many routine, mechanical, non- 
instructional, but essential tasks performed by these Aides permit 
time and energy for classroom teachers to plan for the needs of many 
students. Without the benefit of remedial classes, the regular class- 
room teachers find the help of these Aides all the more valuable in 
their attempts to provide special materials, frequent drills, and other 
activities for improved learning. 

While the amount of federal funds of these Title I projects rep- 
resents a relatively small sum in relation to the total school budget, 
the services and materials they provide at least partially fulfill a 
felt need. There is no question as to the value of additional teachers, 
small classes, special teaching materials, up-dated equipment, reading 
improvement classes, Teacher Aides, etc. Indeed it would be a back- 
ward step, should any of these features be terminated due to lack of 
Federal funds. A more realistic hope would see these and other ser- 
vices become a regular part of the total school program — regardless 
of anticipated sources of financial aid.

we are developing a more effective program. As a result of moving 
and reorganization an excessive amount of time has been devoted to 
information gathering and dispensing. This includes personnel data, 
testing, and organization of career and educational information. Our 
primary concern is to keep the time spent in counseling in the proper 
perspective. 

Larger amounts of career and educational materials have been 
m^ade available to students through a central guidance office and the 
library. An effort is being made to introduce students to this material 
as early as possible in their high school career. 

With the hiring of Miss Patricia Rainey, students at all levels are 
free to seek the assistance of either a male or female counselor. This 
has proven to be of value, and appreciated by the students. 

Students are using the guidance facilities more and know more 
about the types of services this area offers. Though we recognize our 
primary responsibility is to our present students, we welcome the num- 
ber of chances we have had to furnish information to past students 
of the school district. The guidance program, as an integral part of 
the school system, should be of value to the entire educational com- 
munity. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERBERT 0. WILLIAMS 
Guidance Director
